Surprisingly, I did get a few passable shots for the cards and therefore did not cancel Christmas. But it was a close call.
- Liam’s hat is the Santa Hat from Handknit Holidays by Melanie Falick. It’s made with Knit Picks Gloss HW in wine and Cascade Magnum in ecru. The child’s size used about 1/2 ball of each on US 8 and 15, respectively. The bobble band ended up too big after washing, so I frogged back to remove the last bobble and crocheted a slip stitch on the inside at the join of the band to the crown to tighten it up.
- Kellan’s elf hat is a simple hat knit with Adrienne Vittadini Mia in soft olive on US 10.5 (ribbing) and 11s. I’ll try to write up the pattern and post a pdf.
- Liam’s sweater is vintage (ha!). It is the first sweater that I ever knit and was originally made for my godson Aydan 12 or so years ago. It thrills me to no end that it’s still around and being worn.
